    I'm going to be honest i want to play Entropia and deposit money to play, but the fact is with the US dollar and transfer fees i'm just no where near getting the bang for my buck.

    I really think with how the US dollar and transfer fees and all this has gone MA needs to start thinking of how to make the game less expensive expensive to play. For example for me to start playing with my wife again i need to put in at least 500 ped worth but thats like going to cost me nearly 100 canadian dollars with exchange and transfer fees and all that. We can do a lot more with 100 dollars then what could end up being one weekend at most of gaming. I could buy two console games for that much and get a lot more fun out of it. Entropia is not the 100 year old scotch of gaming it's not worth paying a premium to play over every other game out there.

    I honestly think they need to convert the whole economy and divide everything by 10. People dont mind paying to play but it needs to be worth it.
    Even with paypal still available back then, EU has always been a very expensive clickfest with almost no resemblance of active gameplay (Ppl have fallen sleep while hunting!!). It's quite surprising that even the most mediocre MMO feels really amazing after playing EU.

    100 Canadian dollars = €68. I could buy 2 AAA games at that price and have a lot more fun/hour and last a lot longer than EU. Sure you can withdraw, but it's going to be really hard, you might as well just give up the money

    honestly why would anyone be against adding crypto as a payment/withdraw method ped would just be another default stable coin relative to the usd and there are plenty of services that will do the almost real time exchange rate themselves plus no more hassle with banks to withdraw and a lot less time as the request for as the usd backing the ped would only have to go through a conversion to whatever coin is being used then transferred to the requested payout wallet and if ma keeps a wallet with a balance in it all that would need to be done is for someone on their end to submit the payout (as I am guessing for legal reasons they need to have that manual and to do any fraud checking etc) the process will easily go down from the 3 months we have now with a ton of fees to within a week or 2 at most while they streamline it - we might even be able to eventually mint our items (with coins like enjin) and give the option for eu to be like every other blockchain mmo that is being developed now (far less overhead that way as well so there could even be better payouts) - none of these options would even prevent the standard wire transfer or use of another service to withdraw or deposit as they would be able to do all of this without affecting the current in game systems.


    also the usd is not necessarily going to be the gold standard for much longer regardless if anyone is paying attention to the political climate so crypto will make it a lot easier to change that if it should become necessary

    Either add cryptocurrency OR if you cannot (for legal reasons, for example), just don't ban and cooperate with people like my fiends who like earning extra money and PR and have KYC policies for customers and staff who will personally commit trades as part of their p2p arbitrage jobs.

    They tried to create their own token is not the same thing as accepting crypto as payment.Accepting btc/eth as payment is nothing should scare anyone.
    I have a crypto card I paid once in EU just to see if it works.Its a wirex card (https://wirexapp.com/card), you simply load with any crypto they support and make the payment anywhere like any other visa.The card itself does an internal exchange and you end up paying in any currency with your crypto.

    They wont add crypto at least for a very long time and they're smart to keep it that way. They have no actual value, nothing backing them and are completely unstable. They could be worth something today and worthless tomorrow before they cash them in after giving u ped for them. Theres soo many crypto scams going on I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually get banned completely.

    Not to mention security! Im not into my money sitting online someplace to be hacked, frozen or stolen, Cash is king!

    *edit* I realize EU is exactly that but not liking it =p

    "must spread rep".... Seriously, what year is it? There's plenty of crypto payment providers that integrate as easily as Paypal now. It is trivial for MA to implement.

    BTW, NZ just passed legislation that allows employers to pay workers salaries in crypto. Welcome to the present.
